Pens Pals for A Purpose

St. Clair County Community Mental Health (SCCCMH) is excited to start the Pen Pals for A Purpose program with the goal of creating multigenerational connections in the community. We hope our volunteers will be able to develop a relationship with someone they otherwise would not have been introduced to. The Pen Pals Program will help by providing children and adults an emotional outlet while simultaneously bypassing any issues technology may cause. Children and adults will be paired together as pen pals and each write six letters focused on different uplifting and positive topics. Letters will be sent to SCCCMH to ensure that all confidential information will remain private and guarantee anonymity and safety for all participants.

Additional details and the program packets can be found at the links listed below. All individuals are welcome to participate. Adults interested in participating will need to sign an Attestation Form and complete and pass a Background Check at no cost to the participant. Children will need to have a signed Consent Form by a parent or guardian to begin the program.

If you have any questions or need envelopes and stamps, please email Karen Zultak at or call (810) 985-8900.
